The Red Address Book

Author: Sofia Lundberg Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 08/01/2019

`Written with love, told with joy' Fredrik Backman, author of A Man Called Ove A heartwarming debut about 96-year-old Doris, who writes down the memories of her eventful life as she pages through her decades-old address book. But the most profound moment of her life is still to come ... Meet Doris, a 96-year-old woman living alone in her Stockholm apartment. She has few visitors, but her weekly Skype calls with Jenny-her American grandniece, and her only relative-give her great joy and remind her of her own youth. When Doris was a girl, she was given an address book by her father, and ever since she has carefully documented everyone she met and loved throughout the years. Looking through the little book now, Doris sees the many crossed-out names of people long gone and is struck by the urge to put pen to paper. In writing down the stories of her colourful past-working as a maid in Sweden, modelling in Paris during the 30s, fleeing to Manhattan at the dawn of the Second World War-can she help Jenny, haunted by a difficult childhood, to unlock the secrets of their family and finally look to the future? And whatever became of Allan, the love of Doris's life?

La vida es una sucesion de encuentros, como las perlas en un collar. Conocemos y amamos, nos separamos y nos reunimos, compartimos las alegrias y las derrotas, y nos rompen el corazon.Doris, de 96 anos, ha tenido la misma agenda desde 1928. Ese librito rojo contiene su propio collar de perlas, las personas a las que ha conocido y querido a lo largo de su vida. Ahora Doris vive sola en un apartamento del centro de Estocolmo. Muchos de los nombres de su agenda aparecen tachados, eliminados del mundo, y sus unicas visitas son las del servicio de atencion a la tercera edad. Su principal fuente de alegria son las llamadas de su sobrina nieta, Jenny, que vive al otro lado del Atlantico. Un dia Doris empieza a escribir la historia de como conocio a las personas que dieron forma a su vida, para que Jenny, que sera la unica que la recuerde, pueda compartir su posesion mas valiosa: sus recuerdos."e;Es una lectura fascinante que te llegara al corazon y despertara pensamientos que van mas alla de los limites del texto. Un libro brillante que resume lo que significa ser humano y las circunstancias que nos forman y nos atormentan. /.../ Con pulso amable y seguridad estilistica, Sofia Lundberg habla sobre el valor de las relaciones y dibuja una imagen bastante precisa de las condiciones de la vejez. Espero sinceramente que Sofia Lundberg tenga seguidores y que podamos leer sus futuros trabajos"e;Kulturbloggen, Suecia"e;No solo es conmovedora, sino increiblemente emocionante. /.../ Una autentica joya que me alegra poder recomendar"e;.Bokomaten, Suecia"e;La agenda roja cuenta de manera fantastica una vida de amor, felicidad y tristeza"e;.Boktokig, Suecia"e;Un libro que te hara anorar tu hogar, eso fue lo que escribi cuando hable en Instagram de La agenda roja.

Diria que es perfecto para disfrutar junto a una taza de te, una manta calentita, sandwiches de queso y tiempo otonal"e;.Bokoholist, Suecia
